Couldn't find the Steve Reed source article they referenced, but Rotoworld relayed a report confirming that Smith does want out and would prefer to play for the Chargers or Ravens.

ESPN NFC South blogger Pat Yasinskas reports Steve Smith was told in January that the Panthers would "work with him" on a trade if he wants out.

Smith was asked to mull over his future in Carolina and get back to the team's brass. It was made clear that the Panthers will not release Smith or "give him away." The Gaston Gazette's Steve Reed confirms that Smith "does want out," and that his preference is to play for the Chargers or Ravens. If Smith does end up playing with a top-tier QB, he's a good bet to re-join the ranks of the fantasy elite. Any time he's had even an adequate passer, Smith has been one of the most unstoppable receivers in the game.

They're quoting Steve Reed. Trade him to the Chargers along with a pick or picks for Vincent Jackson if true.

That sucks dick. We saw it coming. They ought to treat him like the Bengals did Ocho and shut the sh*t down and make him play for us.

I think Smitty would single-handedly dismantle our locker room if we forced him to stay.

Can't disagree with this. The value we'd get for Smith would be minimal. A 4th rounder would be generous for a 30(31?) year old receiver with a big contract.

I don't want him playing for us if he's going to be unhappy.

Its too bad, I think he will end up like Jerry Rice and other superstars like him, playing out his last days in some other city where no one will remember him when he is gone. I have a feeling when he leaves and realizes he will never have the love from the fans that he had in Carolina, he will be a little regretful, unless he wins a superbowl, then he will probably retire as that teams player :(
